The Strokes, the Darkness and the Super Furry Animals are the first bands set to perform at the One Earth benefit, to be held Jan. 28 at Millennium St
At least three big names have confirmed to perform at the One Earth benefit, to be held Jan. 28 next year at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. They are The Strokes, The Darkness and the Super Furry Animals.
The show is aimed to convert one million European households to renewable energy sources as a part of a not-for profit, non-political, ethical initiative (CNN) with any proceeds going to the UK-based charitable organization One Earth Trust.
Ten acts are set to play short sets with details to be announced. As of the three bands above, they will play for between 20 and 40 minutes. In between the sets worldwide celebrities and dignitaries will encourage public to switch to renewable energy via video and films, so the concert organizers confirmed.
